As most of you know Mike passed away 1/31.
I just wanted to say how beautiful the cemetery is, and how very helpful the staff was.

One thing I would recommend is that you plan ahead. There are a ton of questions that will be asked. I know that we don't want to think of our mortality but this experience really brought home the pre-planning aspect of these things.

The VA will reimburse $2000.00, and it's true the SSA only reimburses $255.00. I would also recommend if you don't already have a service rep get one. I am so thankful for Robert Turner he filled out all the paperwork, and explained every thing that we needed to do along the way.

BTW Jacob and I are doing OK for now.

It's good to hear that you're happy with his resting place and even better to hear that you both are doing ok. You're right, planning such an event isn't something we want to do but it makes it a little stressful for those who remain behind. Hugs...and let us know if there is anything we can do for either of you.

I wouldn't know where to start. Gary has mentioned that but when the time comes if I don't go first, I will be lost. Its good to know there are people that can help explain things.
Again I'm so sorry about your loss. Praying for you XXX
